Colombia is producing more coc aine now than it ever has, according to a new report by Bloomberg. The amount of land planted with coca shrubs is up 17% last year, rising to 171,000 hectares, which surpasses levels prior to US president Bill Clinton’s "Plan Colombia" counter-narcotics program.
Almost all of the world's coc aine comes from Colombia, Bolivia and Peru. Colombia produces more than half of the total coc aine in the world. Under Clinton’s plan, the aid provided to Colombia over the course of the last six decades was "stepped up dramatically". Colombia has repaid the world by cranking out record levels of coc aine - probably not the solution Clinton, or other advocates for aid-giving, were seeking.
Colombia's 171,000 hectares is enough raw material to produce 1,379 tons of coc aine, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. It’s also more than triple the output of five years ago.

You realize coc aine is not an opiate and has practically no use in pharmaceuticals, right?

I'd like to congratulate drugs for winning the war on drugs.
We all knew you could do it buddy
Need I say the CIA be criminals in action,
Co-caine crack-unpacking, high surveillance-tracking.
Prominent blacks and whites giving orders for mass slaughters.
When the USA cant even win a war against a intimate object.
